Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The world is changing for the better thanks to the rapid advancements in medical and healthcare technology. However, many regions in the world, particularly in Africa, lag behind the rest of the world in healthcare facilities. Better healthcare equipment and trained medical staff can improve the standard of living for millions of people in Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. It can also cut down costs and reliance on charity programs that don't do actual good for the people and make them dependent on foreign aid. A sustainable healthcare program that trains local doctors, nurses and paramedical staff can significantly improve healthcare access for the public. It will help raise awareness and focus on developing hospitals and clinics with appropriate medical and surgical equipment that can help save thousands of lives. Improvements in healthcare at the ground level will also cut down costs for government and private hospitals by preventing the spread of disease and pandemics.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Emerging and Re-emerging Diseases, Chronic Disease, Mental Health, Surgical Services, Maternity

Many African communities lack the basic skills in every sector of healthcare. HEPTO was organized to help change this trend by educating and training African healthcare workers and general public in the area of prevention, assessment, plaining, implementation and evaluation. Our main focus is managing of emerging and re-emerging diseases, chronic disease, mental health, surgical services, maternity, nutrition and environmental influences. Our founder, Mohamed Mohamed, developed this theme after witnessing firsthand the implementation of farming program that helped poor African farmers increase their knowledge, which then multiplied the yield of their farms.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our fundamental roles include directing and coordinating healthcare education and training by promoting collaboration, mobilizing partnerships, and stimulating efforts of different actors to respond to healthcare education.
HEPTO will maintain a robust working relationship with all stakeholders such as local administrations, community leaders, education institutions, healthcare facilities, safety departments, and cultural leaders in each community we serve. We cherish our services' firm foundation, which is based on trust, transparency, tolerance, and accountability.
The world is modernizing and adopting new healthcare technology at a rapid pace. Thanks to modern healthcare infrastructure, the average lifespan is higher, and disease prevention is much more effective in the developed countries compared to many regions of Africa.
This is mainly because healthcare professionals' training and education standard are much higher in the western world. Proper medical training and advanced medical infrastructure limits the spread of disease and ensures a lot more people recover from ailments.
A focused public education, medical staff training, and facility improvement project can effectively boost Africa's healthcare system. Ongoing research has shown that empowering locals, especially women, in medicine is the quickest and most successful method of uplifting the whole society, which leads to economic prosperity for the region.
HEPTO customs methods of healthcare services improvement. Paramedical teams will be training with the shorter medical training requirement. We will also help medical facilities improve staff retention, training capability, and productivity of their teams.
The program will also attract health workers, doctors, and nurses in all remote parts of the country by helping them secure small business setup loans and incentive packages through community and government programs. We will work together with local governments and medical colleges to maintain a good quality of healthcare facilities and keep trained professionals in local districts. In addition, we will also help introduce.
e-learning and active mentorship programs to improve ongoing training and development of new and existing medical workers.

Our project aims to educate and train health workers to more than 10,000 per year. This plan would increase the health system's workforce to more than 100,000 from the currently estimated force of 55,000 by about 2026. While this number would still be much lower than ideally required health workers, it would improve healthcare in the communities we serve.
HEPTO will help refit existing hospitals and clinics with modern medical machinery and technical tools. We will also help extend care to underrepresented areas by establishing permanent clinics and mobile healthcare facilities in the region. Our team will partner with established clinics and healthcare providers to ensure that they have access to excellent tools and medications.

The implementation of digital technology can also boost the level of medical service provided at healthcare facilities. As mobile devices are becoming increasingly common in the region, they can deliver better healthcare services to patients over video calls. This will extend medical care to remote locations, and patients will not need to travel long distances to get the help they need.
We will run a program to educate the public on proper hygiene and personal care practices. The community-based health worker will also raise awareness of appropriate food consumption, water preparation and sterilization, best practices for animal handling, and chronic illness maintenance.

HEPTO teams will educate communities through health workers on modern prenatal, postpartum, and infant care practices. Our project will also provide public education to overcome stigma and promote mental health care.
Improvements in patient care go a long way in the cure and prevention of disease. This can be achieved by redesigning healthcare systems and using modern tools, equipment, and methods that ensure improvement.

There are three elements of improving care services for patients.
1.Trained medical staff that provides helpful, friendly care
2.Advanced care facility equipped with modern equipment, and
3.Intuitive medical recording systems and updated databases by helping hospitals, clinics, and dispensaries in the region develop these three key pillars, HEPTO will implement significant changes that raise the level of healthcare in the area.

HEPTO has a team of skilled healthcare workers and digital experts who have previously helped improve the healthcare standard for many medical centers and government institutes worldwide. The Founders and majority of the Board of directors of the Organization are native Africans (American Nationals) who are educated and live in the United States of America.

Most founding members of HEPTO grew up in small villages in Africa. This development project was initiated and developed after they witnessed the uncertainty in African communities' lives firsthand. They are fully invested and interested in improving the standard of healthcare in the region.

Our non-profit organization has built a reputation as a reliable innovator and medical training partner. We are focused on providing educational and systemic reforms that will raise awareness and improve medical care quality in local African communities. We are confident that our project will help save millions of lives, reduce costs in the healthcare sector, and ensure effective service delivery to patients.

We delivered Three 40feet Containers of medical equipment and supplies to Mogadishu Somalia in August 2020. We conducted a profound assessment in remote areas in Ethiopia, during a chrono-virus pandemic, September 2020, and March 2020. We delivered COVID-19 prevention equipment and awareness literature in rural areas in Ethiopia. We created an educational page on our website about the COVIS-19 pandemic with different ethnic launguages. We also completed our assessment in a community clinic in Nairobi Kenya. We established a working relationship with several nonprofit humanitarian organizations based in the USA, Universities, Colleges, and private companies.
We plan to deliver medical equipment and supplies to community hospitals in Ethiopia in July 2021. HEPTO sponsors a medical mission trip in July 2021to Ethiopia. This Medical treatment is a surgical cliff-repair procedure for 50-70 children who bone with lip/pallet cliff.
